logon to windows 2003 sbs domain controller server fails
goes from applying user settings to saving settings then you are back at the logon prompt.
I have worked with Microsoft for 3 days have tried changing changing userinit.exe explorer.exe
I can access the registry and file system over the network as well as execute remote processes.
there is no system state backup
